According to the explanatory note, such a decision should accelerate the passing at the checkpoints at the border and reduce the number of cases of forgery of the passport of the citizen of Ukraine. Besides, it has to strengthen national security.

The amendments will concern only the departure of the Ukrainian citizens to Belarus and during the entrance to Belarus, they will be able to use the Ukrainian passport.
